Penn, McDormand Join Sorrentino’s “Place”

Sean Penn has joined and Frances McDormand is in advanced negotiations for Paolo Sorrentino’s English-language debut feature “This Must Be the Place” for Indigo Film, Lucky Red, Arp Selection and Element Pictures says Variety.

The story follows an aging rock star who decides to hunt down the ex-Nazi criminal who ordered his father’s execution in a concentration camp. McDormand’s role is being kept under wraps.

Nicola Giuliano is producing. Filming kicks off in Dublin in August and will later move to the US.
